With the preseason in full swing and the NFL dealing with other issues, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay’s situation has flown under the radar. If you recall, Irsay was arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating a vehicle with a controlled substance in his body.
Now Irsay is quietly trying make a change to his August 28 court date. According to the Indianapolis Star, Irsay’s lawyer is trying to get his court date pushed back to a later date.
An attorney for Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay filed a motion Monday seeking a continuance of Irsay’s trial on two misdemeanor charges of operating while intoxicated.
Irsay had been slated to stand trial on the charges Aug. 28 in Hamilton Superior Court.
Online court records show the motion was filed Monday by Bruce Boje, one of Irsay’s attorneys. Boje declined to comment on the filing.
Hamilton County court rules require an attorney requesting a continuance to seek the opposing party’s position.
“We were contacted and posed no objection to the request,” said Andre Miksha, spokesman for the prosecutor.
It’s funny that the NFL is quick to make rulings on players, but still no word on when Irsay will be disciplined.
